Butterfly Touch Massage is a gentle technique that helps restore the natural flow of life energy that has been affected by either a sudden shock or gradual but constant trauma as with prolonged stress. Trauma can occur at any point from conception and early experiences in the womb, through childhood and into adulthood. It can occur on any level through surgery, accidents, illness or emotional stress and is unique to each person.
Butterfly Touch Massage invites energy to flow and expand creating a renewed sense of well-being. When performed on adults, this light sweeping touch can help heal primal trauma that is often being unknowingly held as protective “armour”. Just as a premature baby curls up to shield itself from a harsh environment. adults contract or hold muscular tension due to unexpressed emotions thus impeding the flow of life energy.
“Some traumas are not the result of one isolated shock, but occur as consequence of repeated small experiences. As a result armouring develops over time, similar to the way stalactites or stalagmites are formed in caves by slow dripping of the mineralised water.”
